Re: Eating habits with braces!

I was just wondering how soon after braces on I'll be able to eat like normal? I'm going on holiday a week after I get my braces on and I'm hoping to enjoy my food especially as I haven't and probably wont have eaten any solid food between wisdom teeth out on the 13th and getting braces on the 28th....

Re: Ankylosed tooth, and horizontal impacted wisdom tooth.

I don't know about the ankylosed tooth but I just had all 4 of my wisdom teeth (1 of which was horizontally impacted) out last Wednesday. The waiting was the worst part and I got really, really stressed out. But actually it was fine. I had IV sedation and the whole thing (for 4 teeth) took about an ...

Re: No extraction for Class 2 Malocclusion/ Mouth Protrusion

Re: OK--This was not the plan!

Thanks. So excited to begin my journey and get all the wonderful positives you talk about with confidence. I was just wondering if you were ever offered surgery to fix your overjet? I've been given both options (my overjet is 11mm!!!) but would much rather only braces (especially when I hear amazing...

Re: OK--This was not the plan!

Hi I'm new and I just wanted to thank you for sharing your braces story. I too have a big starting overjet and its so good to hear how quickly you were able to reduce yours (I'm hoping for similar results - I'm not braced yet).I'm nervous about dental treatment too so its good to read about someone ...
